Juvenile sharp-shinned hawk at my feeders

Gorgeous sharpie, trying to snatch a sparrow in the early morning snow at my feeders. Caught it through the window getting ready to take off. See how his undertail coverts (white feathers flanking his tail) are curled up (on the right)? Normally, they lay flat (on the left). To see a larger image, click each photo.

I’ve never seen this before – neither had my dear friend, who’s been a birder for eons. Cool!

    Great photos! What kind of camera do you have? I enjoy wildlife photography and bird shots are the hardest to get, especially smaller birds.
